Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Spencer Fraseur : I just love writing. My work is research but writing a book about a specific topic in non-fiction is like a vacation for me away from the rigors of academia.

Spencer Fraseur : I've always wanted to become a writer. It's why I picked my current career in academia and why I decided to write my first book "The Irrational Mind" during my MBA. Once you get into a topic that's interesting...you're hooked!
Hi Dove Daniels, thank you for agreeing to this interview.

Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Dove Daniels : I've been writing since high school. My author journey started in late 2013 under a different pen name. After six or seven years with that pen name, I opted to add writing short romance under this Dove Daniels pen name.
Hi M.Rose Peluso, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
M.Rose Peluso : Hi, my name is Maryanne Peluso but I used the Pen Name: M. Rose Peluso in the writing of my memoir in order to protect the identities of the individuals mentioned in my book. I am a former Catholic Religious Sister, Graphic Artist, and Educator. I had a 10 year-long career in the Graphic Design industry before leaving it behind to enter Religious Life (the Catholic Convent). I suffer from a rare and life-altering chronic painful condition known as pudendal neuropathy. I am now working part-time as a Senior Caregiver.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
M.Rose Peluso : I am really not launching a writing career. I really only had one story to tell - my story and the Lord's and this has been written and told in my memoir, "Behind the Tapestry: My Discovery of God's Grace Amidst Chronic Pain and Loss."
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
M.Rose Peluso : Again, I don't really consider myself a writer. I just had this one powerful story that I needed, felt compelled to share with the world. My journey to bringing "Behind the Tapestry" to the public began in the fall of 2015.
Hi Jennifer Becker, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?

Jennifer Becker : I want to share my stories with people about brave and courageous men and women who aren't afraid to fight for love.
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Jennifer Becker : I feel like I have always been a writer. When writing assignments were given in school and most groaned I was excited because I had a million stories running through my head.

Latest Poem

Countless things put together make us who we are

Perhaps what we’ve learned or things seen near and far

True or false learned from numerous varied sources

Or perhaps something seen travelling many courses

 

It has been my great pleasure to see some special lands

Majestic mountain vistas, Alberta’s haunting badlands

The vastness of the prairie with horizon never reached

The power of the ocean from a shell strewn beach

 

I’ve crossed giant rivers, walked beside the babbling brook

Seen the best and worst of nature seldom pictured in a book

The crags of mountain passes, topped by winter’s sparkling load

Miles and miles of wheat the sun and rain has turned to gold.

 

Acres and acres of deep green peas, topped by the pink of bloom.

Offset in midst of summer with bright yellow canola bloom

A patch-work quilt from nature and the work of many hands

Laid out in squares and diamonds across a great productive land.

 

The history of Bedford Basin, Louisbourg, Queenston Heights

Twenty four hours of daylight, mysterious northern lights

Beaver pelts to England to make all kinds of hats

And each spring the best of sugar boiled from Maple sap.

 

A strong beautiful stallion, head high, nostrils flared,

Eyes full of fire and danger as he guards his heard of mares

Several hundred cattle grazing the luscious grass

Or bedded in the shade to let the hot day pass.

 

Hundreds of pictures we catalogue as we go passing by

Let the good ones erase the bad, or at least let them try

Some of it we saw and some of it we learned.

Some good and some bad but somehow always earned.

 

There’s always strife and woe, you don’t need to hunt it up

Forget it, let it lay. You know there’s the rub

You may hate this or that but it’s all part of the way

You became who you are; what you are today.
